Storyline

A flying boat has to ditch off an island in the Pacific. Along with the injured owner-pilot the passengers include a policeman and his smuggler prisoner, a slimey limey witness against him, a physicist, and a globe-hopping good-time girl. On the island they find a fleet of derelict ships, farm animals tethered, and cameras in a lead-lined bunker and a stark realisation soon dawns. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Memorable
5 October 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I have seen this movie when it premiered in Germany (in 1959 or 1960) at the age of 11 or 12. Despite my young age, I had already become an action movie addict and I remember to this day having been totally fascinated by Attenborough and Constantine's acting. (Must have been too young to notice Ms Angeli). Contrary to another reviewer I believe that Eddie Constantine's "Mark" character in this movie is definitely on the same acting level as his more famous "Lemmy Caution". SOS Pacific had an impact on me which had not diminished even when I saw that film many years later on TV. Let us hope, somebody will finally decide to release this excellent piece of action nostalgia on DVD.
